Storyline

"Unapologetically brash in dialogue and texture GOODNIGHT JOSEPH PARKER is the classic love story brought to a no-pleasantries bar room. Girl loves man who loves woman, woman isn't worth his time. Into that mix throw in a hopeless drunk with a good heart and weak stomach, a bartender who's more desperate than his customers and Steven Tyler as a shameless bad boy looking for a good time and fast woman. Powerful, gritty, hard hitting and raw." Written by Ross Anthony's Hollywood Report Card

Home town boy (a little gray) comes home to the unearned applause of friends and family.
23 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a great low budget drama. All the money must have been spent on the writing and talent but that's all they needed. The actors did an amazing job of commanding your attention. I thought their performances smacked of a recklessness needed to capture the essence of such desperate characters. As in any good drama, the dialogue was gritty, sincere, and emotional. I liked how the actors used the dialogue as tools to forge an atmosphere of loneliness produced by unfulfilled dreams. The camera-work was above average but not exactly great. The editing was excellent most of the time but fell a little short in one or two places. As always, EnjoyJ

I have read the reviews of "professionals" on this and they have little, if any, good to say about it. I say it is worth a try. I liked it. It is a depressing movie if you don't look at the larger picture. This movie is really about hope and redemption; just like the characters, you have to go through hell to get there though.

Lessons: 1) Don't believe everything people tell you. 2) Clean it up before someone falls in it. 3) If you wipe off your face you might find she's right under your nose.

Cast: The acting ranged from good to great. Sorvino did his best work in years and Chinlund has never been better. Mazar and Dickens were both amazingly striking in their performances. Edson did a notch above his usually fine work and even Tyler delivers a solid performance.
